My grandfather is Herbert Haskins Puryear jr. and is from Norfolk, Va. I'm just hoping to learn more about my family history. He was born May 12, 1924 and died july 4, 1988. I don't know anything about his parents or grandparents. I dont know if it will help but my grandfather had six children: Herbert Haskins Puryear III, Curtis Dean Puryear Sr., Jeffrey Puryear, Nancy Puryear, Bridget Puryear, and Janice Puryear.
